Zinedine Zidane has made a sensational return as coach of Real Madrid after Santiago Solari’ s sacking was finally confirmed on Monday .

Zidane has been given a contract until June 2022 , just nine months after he resigned at the end of last season , having led Madrid to an historic third consecutive Champions League triumph .

Solari’ s dismissal was expected after three consecutive home defeats – to Barcelona , twice , and Ajax – deemed Madrid ’ s season all but over before the middle of March .

But Zidane coming back , with only 11 games left in La Liga and almost nothing to play for, is a surprise , particularly after he left on the incredible high of yet another European triumph .
